The Fire Museum
The Connecticut Firemen's Historical Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and displaying the history of firefighting in America with special emphasis on Connecticut.
The Fire Museum located in the heart of the Cheney National Historic District, The Fire Museum is housed in a retired 1901 fire station with a unique atmosphere that saw the transition from hand drawn to horse drawn, then to motorized apparatus. In addition to a working Gamewell Fire Alarm System, our collection includes hundreds of fine examples of early American craftsmanship related to firefighting such as glassware, lighting, leather making, photography, textiles and paintings.
